My Father’s Color Periods

video Installation with 16 old TV sets and cellophane sheets

"Tonight the film will be broadcast in color" - a rumor spread in 1979 among people who believed that the state owned TV station would show the film in color despite of the fact that the TV´s were still black &white. Unlike in cities with Arab inhabitants the majority of the people in Kurdish area of Iraq still had no reach of color TV sets. So my father would cut and stick a sheet of cellophane on the screen of our TV at home. Some times it stayed one week until he switched to another color. We used to watch films, music videos and all other programs, once in blue, pink, green and yellow and so on. Later that he started also with dividing the screen into two, three or four squares with different color in each. Eventually he began with stripes and other possible forms. We were watching the figures walking from blue to green, though yellow, purple to pink. In a while the entire city employed it with their black and white TVs going through the blue, then to pink, yellow phases and so on.

In July 2014, the New Museum will present “Here and Elsewhere,” a major exhibition of contemporary art from and about the Arab world.

In the past ten years, the work of artists and cultural spaces in cities such as Amman, Beirut, Cairo, Dubai, Doha, Marrakesh, Ramallah, and Sharjah, among others, have established critical points of global access. However, despite a growing international interest in contemporary art from across North Africa and the Middle East, there have been few presentations of art from these regions in New York. “Here and Elsewhere” is the first museum-wide exhibition in New York to bring together more than forty artists from over twelve countries in the Arab world, many of whom live and work internationally.

One Room Apartment/ Impakt Festival

Is our economic system doomed? The 2013, the Impakt Festival investigates capitalism, that in spite of much criticism to this day seems to be the only economic system to function but – at the same time – it seems a dead end. How do we solve this dilemma? Impakt Festival 2013 takes place from 30 October – 3 November on different locations throughout Utrecht.
